Dibs (n.) – “an expression used to reserve or claim almost anything; practically a law. Nothing trumps Dibs!”
Campusdibs.com is a group-buying site that connects students to unbeatable local and national deals. Campus Dibs is a privately funded, fast-paced startup. We are currently seeking a motivated sales & marketing intern.
The Sales Associate is tasked with establishing partnerships and managing relationships with businesses and brands that resonate with our audience. Your role involves reaching out to retailers, restaurants, education companies, travel providers (and everyone in between), and negotiating unbeatable offers on behalf of Campus Dibs subscribers. This role requires initiative, experience, and a strong network, so candidates must be connected, innovative, and sales-minded. The ideal candidate knows and enjoys targeting campuses and students, and brings or is able to execute strong existing relationships with brand managers and marketing executives. Experience with online sales, advertising, and social media are beneficial but not a requirement. This is an opportunity with a fast-paced company with room for growth.
